What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

His primary areas of study are Physical therapy, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Low back pain, Pain catastrophizing and Psychosocial. Steven Z. George studies Chronic pain, a branch of Physical therapy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rehabilitation, Manual therapy, Threshold of pain and Meta-analysis.

Steven Z. George interconnects Lumbar, Cohort study, Public health and Referral in the investigation of issues within Low back pain. His Pain catastrophizing research incorporates elements of Chronic low back pain, Predictive value of tests, Depression and Anxiety. His Psychosocial research includes elements of Anterior cruciate ligament, Observational study, Activities of daily living and Cohort.

His most cited work include:

  • The Mechanisms of Manual Therapy in the Treatment of Musculoskeletal Pain: A Comprehensive Model (609 citations)
  • The role of fear-avoidance beliefs in acute low back pain: relationships with current and future disability and work status. (425 citations)
  • The effect of a fear-avoidance-based physical therapy intervention for patients with acute low back pain: results of a randomized clinical trial. (249 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Steven Z. George mainly focuses on Physical therapy, Low back pain, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Pain catastrophizing and Chronic pain. A large part of his Physical therapy studies is devoted to Rehabilitation. As a part of the same scientific study, Steven Z. George usually deals with the Low back pain, concentrating on Clinical trial and frequently concerns with Psychological intervention.

He has included themes like Manual therapy, Lumbar, Threshold of pain and Summation in his Physical medicine and rehabilitation study. His studies link Spinal manipulation with Manual therapy. His work in Pain catastrophizing addresses issues such as Anxiety, which are connected to fields such as Depression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical therapy (72.66%)
  • Low back pain (32.29%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (25.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Physical therapy (72.66%)
  • Low back pain (32.29%)
  • Musculoskeletal pain (7.03%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Physical therapy, Low back pain, Musculoskeletal pain, Pain catastrophizing and Cohort. Steven Z. George merges Physical therapy with In patient in his study. His research on Low back pain also deals with topics like

  • Confidence interval which intersects with area such as Osteoarthritis and Odds ratio,
  • Back pain which is related to area like Physical medicine and rehabilitation,
  • Emergency department that intertwine with fields like Depression.

His Musculoskeletal pain research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Randomization, Nocebo, Primary care and Repeated measures design. His study in Pain catastrophizing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rehabilitation, Shoulder injury, Anxiety, Range of motion and Prospective cohort study. The Cohort study combines topics in areas such as Coping, Psychological testing, Clinical psychology and Chronic pain.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Unraveling the Mechanisms of Manual Therapy: Modeling an Approach (90 citations)
  • Advancing Psychologically Informed Practice for Patients With Persistent Musculoskeletal Pain: Promise, Pitfalls, and Solutions. (50 citations)
  • Association of Early Physical Therapy With Long-term Opioid Use Among Opioid-Naive Patients With Musculoskeletal Pain. (32 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

Steven Z. George mostly deals with Physical therapy, Low back pain, Odds ratio, Public health and Musculoskeletal pain. He mostly deals with Pain catastrophizing in his studies of Physical therapy. His research in Pain catastrophizing intersects with topics in Rehabilitation and Range of motion.

His work deals with themes such as Primary care and Health policy, which intersect with Low back pain. His Odds ratio research also works with subjects such as

  • Confidence interval and related Generalized estimating equation, Odds, Logistic regression and Back pain,
  • Neck pain that connect with fields like Cross-sectional study, Emergency department, Predictive value of tests and Cohort study,
  • Orthopedic surgery together with Self-efficacy and Anterior cruciate ligament,
  • Retrospective cohort study which is related to area like Emergency medicine and Outpatient clinic. His studies in Musculoskeletal pain integrate themes in fields like Psychotherapist, Disease cluster, Analysis of variance and Response to treatment.
